MTH 244 Section 3 Differential Equations Spring 2003

The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Below the calendar is a list of sections in the textbook "Ordinary Differential Equations" (third edition) by N.J. Finizio & G. Ladas, with suggested problems. Some of these may be done in class, others as homework. You should attempt them all. (Note: In the problem lists, a notation like 3-9 means that all the problems 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are assigned.)
